|Abstract:||Freshwater and subaerial diatom floras have not been extensively
examined in the Hawaiian Islands. This paper reports the study of a subaerial
diatom flora in a small steam vent near Kilauea Crater, Island of Hawaii. A total
of 35 taxa was identified , 3 of which are new records for the state. The Kilauea
vent flora is unusual in floral composition and differs markedly from other
Hawaiian subaerial diatom floras we have studied, particularly in the dominance
of Anomoeoneis serians var. brachysira and Frustulia rhomboides.
